We just had our Fourth of July party which was hosted by my son and daughter-in-law, Dominic and Sarah. They have been blessed with a lovely country setting and so each year they share it with many as we all gather to express our love for our country. He also puts on a magnificent fireworks show in the evening. It is a memorable day!

“America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance — it is not. It is suffering from tolerance. Tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos. Our country is not nearly so overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broadminded.” ~Fulton Sheen
“I have tried to show you , that you cannot become good and strong men and women, that is, men and women of character, unless you have Will-power, and further that you will be of little or no use to your country if you are weak-willed. It has been well said that ‘the only way to be a patriotic American is to do your best to become a perfect man.’ and a perfect man you will not be unless your Will is strong.”
